What I am trying to do is get a gallery working on a multisite wordpress installation . . It works on the home site because that is where wordpress is actually installed but not on the sub domain sites. Timthumb.php is a script that basically resizes images into a thumbnail. So on main domain it works but not on any subdomains, it doesn't show the thumb, only the main image once the thumb is clicked.

The creator of timthumb.php wrote a fix at http://www.binarymoon.co.uk/2009/10/timthumb-wordpress-mu/ but I cannot work out the application for my case. Any tips?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


TimThumb is enough of a resource drain on a non-network install; I can only imagine how much more of a resource drain it would be on a network install.

Rather than trying to make TimThumb work on your network install, why not just use the core Post Thumbnail functionality? TimThumb is absolutely unnecessary in WordPress.


I had this same issue and tried the binarymoon fix... but it never worked out for me. But, I found this fix!


Just copy paste the timbthumb.php file with the mulitsite fix in it and you should be good to go. Good Luck.
